Great Keyboard, same Apple pricing

Advantages: Looks good, nice to type with
Disadvantages: Rather expensive, but it is Apple after all
I am a little fussy when is comes to keyboards. At home I use a desktop PC but at work a use a Mac. No matter what computer im using I like the keyboard to be nice to type with. When I first started working I used the old fashioned, clunky Apple keyboard which was awful. I hated how difficult it was to push the keys and as a result made a load of typing mistakes. The office decided to change all the keyboards to the new style slim apple keyboards.
The keyboard looks great. The white keys with grey background work very well and look great on the desk. The most noticeable thing about the keyboard in my opinion is the dimensions, at only 43 x 11.5 x 1.5 cm, the keyboard is tiny. I like the fact that there are no pointless buttons around the top and side of the keyboard, reducing the overall size. There is the additional number keyboard of the right had side which is very handy for inputting numbers, especially on large spreadsheets etc. The keyboard is surprisingly heavy considering the size, but if anything this is a benefit as makes it harder to slide around. The key layout is tradition Apple style, adopting the American layout rather than the traditional English layout which is common amongst other keyboard manufacturers. This takes a little getting used to but works well once you get to grips with it. The keys are easy and pleasant to push and are more comparable to a laptops keys instead of a traditional clunky keyboard.
I own the wired version, however I believe a wireless version is available. The connection is a simple USB which allows for plug and play usage, no installation required. The best part about the keyboard is the 2 usb ports on the side. This allows for easy use of memory keys, cameras or anything that requires a usb connection without having to fiddle around the back of the machine trying to locate one.
The keyboard is expensive at around £45. However if you are a Mac owner is pretty essential. Ordering from amazon was easy as usual with fast delivery. The item came well packaged as with all Apple products.
Summary: Great tool
